After an incredible week at E3, we’re back in action with our noses to the grindstone, so to speak. You likely saw the announcements that touched on PlayStation Plus, and we’re looking forward to sharing more news with you in the coming months on PS Plus and the benefits of one membership across PS3, PS Vita, and now PS4; of which we confirmed will have an Instant Game Collection.

Of course, we’re still bringing you new content every week in PS Plus, and this week is no exception. With tomorrow’s PlayStation Store update, you’ll have access to the critically acclaimed Saints Row: The Third on PS3, and the anime stylized PSP action game Gods Eater Burst (compatible on PS Vita); both free with your PS Plus membership. Read on, and let us know what you think!

June 18th PlayStation Plus Update

Saints Row: The Third (PS3)
Saints Row The Third
PSN Price: $39.99, Free for PS Plus members
Years after taking Stilwater for their own, the Third Street Saints have evolved from street gang to household brand name, with Saints sneakers, Saints energy drinks and Johnny Gat bobble head dolls all available at a store near you. The Syndicate, a legendary criminal fraternity with pawns in play all over the globe, has turned its eye on the Saints and demands tribute. Refusing to kneel to the Syndicate, you take the fight to a new city.

Gods Eater Burst (PSP, Compatible on PS Vita)
Gods Eater Burst
PSN Price: $19.99, Free for PS Plus members
In Gods Eater Burst, the earth is plagued by altered beasts known as Aragami. The player is a new member of an elite force created to wield the God Arc (the only weapon capable of killing the Aragami) and devour the hostile gods. The player’s mission is to defeat the Aragami and gather material from them for research, but the player soon will realize they are being drawn into a giant conspiracy that will irreversibly alter the fate of humanity

Last Chance (Leaving on 6/25)

Instant Game Collection
Blazblue: Continuum Shift Extend


You’ll find all the content detailed above with their Plus benefits active when the PlayStation Store updates tomorrow.

If you’re wondering if you will no longer be able to play them once they leave, yes, as long as you have them downloaded, you get to keep them as long as you’re a subscriber to PLUS.

When I download Saints Row it states I have the download for June 2014. Is this a yearly trial or will it stay in my account while I subscribe to playstation plus? I downloaded it twice and it still gives me an expiration date of 2014.

You evidently started your plus subscription this month, but yes it’s yours until your subscription expires. If you re-subscribe in 2014, it will still be there for the duration of your subscription.

Hi everyone,

Just curious, I joined about a week ago. Saint row 3 is not showing up as a playstation plus game nor is the Blazblue title (the one that is supposed to run out in 5 days time.) I dont know if it makes a difference that I am from Australia. Current date and time is Thursday 20th June 2013. Its 12.45pm.

@ Pilgrimlk

Many thanks. Just realised AU was grouped with EU. No wonder all the PSN network cards said Europe on it ;-)

Is very sad to see the European store, with Rayman Origins, now with Unit 13 and Ninja Gaiden Sigma, and we have a psi game reviewed in a 6.5/10

im very dissapointed of your attitude sony, i cant understand why you dont give the same to us.

this lasts 3 months has been just dissapoint after dissapoint (except blazblue) i think i will not buy another PS + suscription.

Thank you Sony America.

Great stuff as always. :) I’d love to see the Legacy of Kain series get an HD update (especially if it’s a PS+ freebie)

Way to go Sony! I am loving this months PS+ IGC additions. I have been wanting to play the latest Deus Ex since it’s launch and haven’t had the chance. This game is fantastic compared to the last. Saints Row The Third is also an excellent addition. Since I finished Sleeping Dogs, this gives me another crazy world to go amok in. Machinarium is beautiful. I played the demo and eagerly wanted to know more… Now I can! Thanks Sony for delivering yet again another month of great updates and games. Really looking forward to the PS+ on the PS4. DriveClub for the first IGC for the win!

Have you guys at Sony ever consider updating the other freebies section some of those themes and avatars are really old and we could use some news ones please.

Great to see God’s with PS Vita support. I actually own it and have downloaded Saints Row the third. Thank you Sony for being loyal to your customers.

I do not know if you have a say in this or not but since seeing the PSP game, Gods Eater Burst, compatible with Vita, I have been wondering if PSN would be willing to place classic PS2 games on the Playstation Network Store that are compatible with PS3. I’m not exactly an expert but I am sure that making PS2 and PS1 games for PSN and IGC would be an excellent way to increase sales and PS+ membership.

After I downloaded SR3rd and tried to install I kept getting an error so I deleted the download and now when I try to download it again the download screen pops up but instead it starts counting up from KB to MB etc. Also not giving the download in background option or time remaining or anything other than the count up. Any ideas why and how to fix it. I have so far tried to redownload through PSN and through my account management under transaction history and both do the same.

Muareece said:

Is Saints Row : The Third unavailable to download now?
I keep trying to download it only to get the same error saying that the game cannot be purchased at this time. Any suggestions?

First i do enjoy the service and have gotten some nice games. I appreciate that someone from Sony listens and even interacts. That is a blessing and inspires me to chime in.

That said I would appreciate some more family friendly games that aren’t cheese. I guess it goes with the world but I get pretty sick of a whole bunch of foul mouth make believe people trying to sound tough. Gutter mouth doesn’t make anybody sound tough, Just stupid.

So I guess I’d like more games that aren’t sex laden or foul mouthed overall. Some I download and delete almost immediately when I’m assaulted by f bombs. Just some info about where I’m coming from and where I know many others are too.

Maybe pass it on to the developers. Clean it up and make more fans and more money. As to specific games I love open world 3rd person. Enjoy Batman Arkham and Uncharted and Infamous, etc. I’d also like to see Mass Effect here. I hear it’s great but only played a little bit. Well thanks for listening.

Yeah sadly I won’t be DLing SR3. Watched a game play video. Such an awesome looking sandbox game I’d absolutely love IF…It wasn’t filled with filth and depravity. Come on folks! Ruin a great game with filth. Purple dildos? Naked people? Get out of the sewer!
